I’m grateful to everyone who commented.

Although it is somewhat common for me, yesterday I was feeling extremely self-conscious about my sexuality and I reached out for some validation. Truthfully, I am way more accepting about this part of myself then I have ever been. And I am comfortable admitting I’m bisexual – to myself and anyone online that will listen. Sometimes, I even feel a little pride about it.

Of course, I have always felt that I will be at a true place of acceptance when I can be at the point where I do not make it a point of mentioning. I think, whenever I get to that point, I won’t care if people accept me or not. I have always felt that is the true place of self-acceptance and empowerment. The idea that my sexuality is no more relevant to me than my eye color or that I like peanut butter, than anything else. Granted, it does touch on something very relevant to people – the idea of intimacy in relationships.

But, on that note, shouldn’t I be at a place where my relationship is what my partner and I want it to be and devoid of any external influence?  I would think so.  But I know I’m not really at that point yet. And it does help to have people accept me just the way I am.  I suppose, I just want something like that in my real life and I hope someday that I have the opportunity to brave enough to just be me.  But having you all be supportive and encouraging to me is incredibly helpful.

For that, I thank you all and I appreciate you all!

From the bottom of my heart, I love you all for yesterday! ❤ ❤ ❤

  1. I know you aren’t the only one struggling with this. I have a close friend that is married and has a child and is contemplating leaving his family over his sexuality. Just because this isn’t an issue for me, it does not mean I can’t empathize with both of your situations. I feel for you. I don’t have the answers, but I have two good ears to listen with and eyes to read and reply to you. Hugs and love back at ya!
